Fast schwarz, dunkelrote Reflexe. Viel kurzer beiger Schaum. Nur wenig Aromen röst und dunkle Schoggi. Malzig-süss und vollmundig, wenig Co2. Erst im Abgang leicht bitter. Recht gut.

Pint bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a near black with purple highlights. A khaki colored head appears with the pour, but dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is ashy, dark bitter chocolate, licorice, fruity pebbles. The taste is more on the dry bitter side. Medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 13B). Bottle 50 cl - batch unknown. AROMA: sweet roasted aroma with a cream-like character. notes of dark chocolate and no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: very dark Brown color with dark ruby highlights. moussy tanned head with below average retention. TASTE: sweet chocolate flavour with faint notes of coffe on the background. low bitterness with a balanced sweet and roasted finish. PALATE: medium-low body and somewhat creamy. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an interesting cream stout that would benefit from an improved body.

Alcoholoic aroma with dark roasted bread, chocolate, light hoppy, cask wood, red wine. Initial taste is moderate sweet, light acidic and bitter. Some cocoa and roasted malt. Finish duration is average to long, moderate astringent, light alcoholic and coffee. Amazing beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The choclate flavor finds its prolongation in the tase. A very nice chocolate caramel taste combined with a hint of fruityness, coming from the use of two hop sorts. The first sip might be a bit surprising, due to this very light acid note, but it levels the stong roast character and rounds it up. A bit like adding sugar to a salad dressing. The aftertaste could be more persisting in my eyes. With every sip you want to take immediately the next one - other stouts last in the mouth and you can still enjoy without taking a next sip. But maybe the brewers want exactly this effect...
This is a very good stout with a surprising fruity side note, even bit acid. A very nice beer to accompany nut-cakes. Why I gave only 7 points for the overall taste? I miss the round, full bodied after taste. This is a bit too light for a stout in my eyes.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a very near black, with a halo of tan head. Aroma of chocolate, slightly sweet coffee and dried fruit. Medium to full mouthfeel. Flavours are sweet, but not saccharine; cocoa, mocha and some roasted malt to balance. Finish was fairly light, some brown sugar, dates and chewy malt.
